The above link points to:


Which shows the differences, sort of.  What surprises me is 
how difficult it was to find this page.  Very annoying.

Keep in mind that Red Hat is in business to make money, and
so will do what's best for them.  This will not necessarily 
be what's best for you, and is the kind of conflict that led
to the Free Software movement in the first place.

If you are more interested in what's best for you, I 
encourage you to get familiar with some user-supported 
distributions like Debian and Gentoo.
